Roman Reigns WWE Raw

Keep Refreshing For The Latest Results

I fell asleep during Backlash, y’all. I don’t know if it was the Cinco De Mayo festivities the night prior, or if the PPV was really that bad, but by the time Nia cut her horrible promo, I was chin to chest knocked the F out. Let’s home tonight rectifies that…

Oh, who am I kidding.

ZZZZZZ


This week’s report brought to you by Riley Reid biting my girlfriend’s ass!

LETS GET RAW!!!

Angle starts RAW more excited than all of us combined. Ladders are all over the top of the stage. Angle claims he’s been in the WWE family for over 20 years. I’m sure there was a small gap in time there, Angle…

Angle says that they never stop. 52 weeks a year, and they never stop. Angle says that next up is Money in the Bank. Two matches will be at the PPV, and they’re going to kick some “real butt” claims Angle.

Tonight, there will be two qualifying matches. Ember Moon will face Ruby Riot and Sasha Banks – there will also be a match between Reigns, Zayn, and Finn.

Braun Strowman apparently does not like this announcement, because his roar hits and he heads out angrily. Coach, like an idiot, claims he doesn’t know if he’s ever seen anyone as big as Braun in any type of ladder match…idiot.

GET THESE HANDS chant as Braun grabs the mic. Braun says that when he was a kid, a bunch of his neighborhood built a treehouse, and not one time did they ever ask him for help. When they got done, he had to listen to them talk about a stupid little handshake just to get into the treehouse. So ya know what he did? He waited for everyone to get in then knocked the whole tree down. haha. Nice.

Angle says he won’t lie, Braun has been on a roll. Kevin Owens interrupt and says he is RAW’s MVP. He is a team player. He respect the rules, unlike Braun. Last night, the wrong man was pinned. Which means Braun is not a loser, and he’s not on a roll – Owens is on a roll. He shouldn’t have to be in a match to earn it. Braun only deserves to be sent into a tiny corner so that he can reflect on how he has been a very bad monster.

Owens tries to make his case, but Braun says that he’s going to get these hands. Owens isn’t interested. He wants to be treated fairly. What Kurt is going to do is make a smart decision – Angle needs this job. This decision should be that Owens will be the first RAW member in the MITB match.

Angle claims that Braun will be in a Qualifying match, and “ironically,” it will be with Braun….that’s not irony.

This match starts now.

We are backstage with Roman Reigns and Mike Somethin-Or-Other for an interview. Mike claims Reigns handled his business last night, and asks for Reign’s mindset. Reigns calls himself the Uncrowned Universal Champion. He is sick and tired of it. He can’t control the backstage politics. He silences all the haters and doubters. He has made a career out of silencing the hate – just ask Heyman and Brock and Joe. It’s about tonight. He wouldn’t want to be Finn or Zayn, because Reigns is pissed off. He’s going to dominate and win then go on to Money in the Bank, then he will be in full control of his destiny, and he will take back what’s rightfully his. This is his mindset. Understand?

Honestly, that was a solid ass promo, but it lacks believablity due to who it’s coming from…you know…the “face” of the company?

Earlier today, Bayley cut an iPhone promo. It’s stupid. Words on the screen are stupid. Will is stupid.

We switch to Angle staring off screen. He looks like he needs medical attention. Anyways, GOldust is here and wants to be in a qualifying match. It’s his quest for the ultimate gold. Angle’s attention is taken away from Jinder Mahal who thought coming to RAW was a good move for his career, but why is he not in the triple threat. Why is Reigns in it? He has gotten opportunity after opportunity and Jinder has received none. Angle says he hasn’t won a match on RAW since he got here. Well, tonight he’s going to face Chad Gable and if he does a good show, Angle will consider MitB. Jinder orders a falafel then leaves.

Goldust says tonight’s going to be a bumpy night.

Next, No Way Jose teams up with Apollo and Titus cuz he’s black.

Backstage, a sheened up Ember is all smiles. She tells Charley she is “over the moon.” You can say whatever you want. People have tried to limit her her entire life. She proves them wrong. Tonight she seized an opportunity. She is skill, honor, and heart. She will rise to every….ya know what? She’s going to rise and grab that contract.

WHO WRITES THIS?!?!

Cole claims Ember Moon is taking the WWE by storm just like Bobby Lashley.

It took nearly a month, but apparently they’ve decided that people should probably know who Bobby Lashley is. We get a video package of a lanky Lashley being all bad ass on wrestling teams as a youth, including his army history. It’s worth noting that they stop the history telling with his MMA career then claim that he has been on a ten-year hiatus.

After the video package, we get an interview with Renee. She wants to know who is Bobby Lashley. Lashley claims that he is extremely blessed. He had a great family. Three older sisters that he was close with. When he was younger, he didn’t think they were. They used to tie him up and leave him alone for hours. He claims Cathy would chase him with a broom. Jessica had a security towel from his grandmother. Over time, this towel would get super dirty and it stank. Bullies took it from her and he took the towel from the bully and shoved it down his throat. Francis was the youngest and closest to Lashley’s age. She was Daddy’s Little Girl. His dad was in the army, and Francis would carry his helmet with her. He hid the helmet, and that’s how the scar came to be on his face under his eye.

Lashley brings up his extended family – the WWE Universe. He wants to do one thing before he leavees – Hello to his sisters. He loves them.

-hard stare at cam-

Backstage, Zayn thinks there is a cloud of conspiracy hanging over he and his friend Owens. Zayn is going to have a nice little triple threat while he had to face Braun? Zayn says “They” want these two to break up. Owens says they must be getting what they want after Sami slapped him in the face. Zayn claims that was yesterday. They need to become Universal Champion so that they can come from a position of power. Sami apologizes for yesterday. Sami says they need to qualify for the match. TOnight, anything goes in the Triple Threat. Sami wants to know Owens has his back. Owens hesitates. Sami pumps it up. Owens says yes.

Jinder with knee after knee to Gable. Jinder grabs Gable, locks the head up, and hits a front suplex onto the ropes. Jinder isn’t done. He kicks Gable hard, sending him to the outside.

So, I guess The Ascension are in the Money in the Bank? Or trying to be? I dunno, they did a cell phone promo or some shit.

Backstage, Angle is still starin off to stage left with his mouth open.

Oh, it’s Zack Ryder, and he calls himself a hometown hero. IN comes Jinder to tell Angle that he isn’t asking Angle to take Reigns out of the match, but to put Jinder in the main event and make it a Fatal Four Way. Angle then says no and woo woo woo.

Angle then acts all Uncle Fester and…I just…

Bobby gets an interview in the middle of the ring. He says the victory feels great, but that’s an understatement. In the near future, those emotions are going to get a lot better. RAW GM has been handing out qualifying matches all night long, and after what he just did, he’s hoping that he’s next in line for one as well. Beating Elias tonight was great, Charley, but winning the MitB ladder match would be…..GLORIOUS.

Issuing

Issueing??

Iss—uing.

Oh, so Mojo is here to accept the open challenge. He says this is the RAW debut that he deserves. When opportunity comes knockin, Mojo knocks people down. He’s going to do that to Seth.

WE WANT RYDER chant.

Mojo’s going to knock Seth down just like he did Ryder. After he beats Seth, he’ll qualifying the MitB then win the briefcase. This is no longer Monday Night Rollins, it’s Monday Night Rawley.
